Many of you may have seen the title and thought, “Really? Buying a bra online? Is that even possible?” Yes, it is and there are plenty of online stores that cater to those who want to shop for intimate wear from the comfort of their own homes. For some women the mere act of driving to a store, looking for parking, and having to change in a cold change room is a definite no.
Shopping online provides a few advantages such as a larger and more unique selection than what you may find in a retail store. It also may provide better price points.
Up until now, I’d never purchased a bra online and would usually do the whole in-store thing. So, I decided to partner with Designer Intimates and took the plunge. The whole process of buying a bra online turned out to be a pretty good experience. I ended up selecting three bras that fit well and were extremely cute.
Designer intimates is the official e-shop for lingerie brands Felina, Jezebel, Paramour and Black Bow. They offer high discounts on designer underwear and lingerie but also offer items for men as well.
So, here are my 4 tips and tricks for anyone who may be interested in going bra shopping online.
Tip #1: Know Your Size
Knowing your size is critical. Bras come in many sizes and to guarantee a better fit they must fit your specific dimensions. Your bra should compliment you. Therefore a bra that fits too big or too small can be uncomfortable and look awkward. A guide to help you determine your size can be found here
Tip #2: Know What You Need & What Best Fits Your Shape
There are many different types of bras. To make the selection process easier, know what type you need. i.e. a strapless or a push-up bra. Each type of bra looks and fits better with certain body types. For example, if you are full busted then an bra offering full coverage and support would work better than one that does not.
Tip #3: Understand the Return Policy
The return policy for any online purchase is very important just in case you’re not satisfied with your purchase or it doesn’t fit as well as you’d like. I would advise you to read and understand the return policy before making a purchase. Also be aware of the shipping and handling fees, and money vs store credit for returns.
Tip #4: Pay Attention to the Fine Print
Read descriptions well to make sure you understand your purchase. You may also find important details in the fine print. i.e. the fabrics used in the bra or care instructions.
